Permanent, low-till beds with lots of mulch and regular cover crops creates healthy soil and optimizes nutrition.

Nourish our community. Build our soil. 
Restore heritage breeds.

These are the intentions of Red Shirt Farm, a small, diverse, family-owned farm in Lanesboro, Massachusetts in the heart of the Berkshires.We believe that real food is essential to health and that how food is produced truly matters. 

We raise vegetables without the use of any pesticides or herbicides using methods that enhance the soil and nutrient density. Our pasture-raised animals are integral to the vitality of our farm. Heritage chickens, turkeys and pigs produce eggs and meat of unparalleled flavor and superior nutrition. Our bees pollinate our plants and conjure golden honey. The farm is a beautiful, relaxing place that offers an idyllic experience for all who visit.

We believe that real food is essential to health and that how food is produced truly matters.
